Virtual reality ‘game’ to teach students criminal law
13th Sep 2016
Academics at Westminster Law School have joined forces with their counterparts in the university’s Department of Computer Science to create a virtual reality “game” that they hope will teach students criminal law. It will allow the students to explore a real case scenario using virtual reality technology, the project won the best paper award at the Immersive Learning Research Network conference this year. According to the paper, “serious games” – those thought to have educational value – can be very effective as an instructional tool, and can promote student motivation and interest in the subject matter.
